Obituary

Elizabeth Niro, age 55, of Bloomingdale, NY died Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at her home.

Beth was born in Tupper Lake, New York on September 30, 1963, she was the daughter of Francis and Isabelle (Sweet) Callaghan. Beth married Luc Niro on March 27, 1999. He predeceased her February 19, 2013.

Beth, as she strongly preferred to be called, was a spitfire. She was born with a cleft pallet and had many surgeries over the first years of her life which contributed in forming her strength and spirited attitude toward life She made her presence known always and one couldn’t help but be attracted to her outgoing spirit. She loved her cats from the first, Precious, to the last, Molly. She loved to read, shop, and be with her family and friends. She loved everything Disney and loved movies. She would travel and was ready to go with every opportunity presented. She had made many friends over the years and continued to gain them whenever she could. Her love for her extended family, our cousins, was vast. She enjoyed her Irish heritage and loved her green decorations.

Her neighbor’s and the staff at Overlook Apartments in Bloomingdale were such a blessing, they were people she relied on and we are grateful for the support and friendship they provided to her daily. She was blessed, as was her family, to have a wonderful support system in the Community Programs offered through North Star Industries to which Beth belonged. We are so grateful for all of the people who worked with her over the years. She had many staff work with her but her most recent, Candy Callaghan, was a standout and we want to say a public thank you to her for going above and beyond to help our sister and aunt. We will miss our youngest sibling, no holiday or family gathering will be the same without her.


She is survived by four sisters Maureen Callaghan of Saranac Lake, Shirley (Zeb) Clark Vance of Mt. Dora, FL, Kathleen Leamont of Kingston, PA, and Colleen (Todd) King of Tupper Lake, three brothers W. Randy Stringham of Port St. Lucie, FL, Timothy Callaghan of Tupper Lake, and Peter Callaghan of Lake Clear and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded one brother A. Patrick Callaghan.


Calling hours will take place at the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home in Saranac Lake from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm on Friday March 22nd. A memorial service will immediately follow at 5:30 pm at the funeral home, with Rev. Patrick Ratigan officiating. Burial will take place at St. Bernard Cemetery in Saranac Lake in the spring.

I was so saddened to hear of Beth's passing. I first met her when we attended Holy Ghost Academy. Throughout the years, we would occasionally run into each other and she always remembered me. She was a beautiful person and her smile was contagious.
I feel very honored to have known her. Sincerely, Becky (Denis) Moeller

So sad to hear of Beth's passing. She was such a sweetheart and a spitfire. I know her from being with Luc and she lived across the hall from my mom , June. She and Luc spent much time with my mom and she always commented on my posts on facebook as my sis. :-) She will be missed. However she is with the love of her life, Luc, having a blast with him and my mom.

Sis, such a beautiful smile and spirt has left us to early. I so enjoyed our phone call, laughter and sharing what we had been up to. You were always the strong one and I always enjoyed hearing from you. Now you can rest, you are with our Lord and your precious brother, out Patrick. To the rest of the Callaghan family, may you find peace with the memories of Beth and her love for her family and know my love and prayers are with all of you. I loved Bethy so very much, she will be missed.
